Helping Grandparents Maintain Relationships With Grandchildren
There is a common misconception that grandparents have no right to visitation with their grandchildren. While this is true in the cases of intact families, if the parents are divorced or separated, or one or both parents have passed away, it may be possible to obtain companionship rights from the court. Additionally, if the parents were never married, but are involved in the court with custody or support matters, grandparents’ rights may also apply.
Located in Cincinnati, the law firm of Brinkman & Associates can help you with visitation or adoption matters that concern your grandchildren.
Custody And Visitation Matters For Grandparents
Our attorneys have extensive experience representing grandparents and helping them assert their rights. We can represent your interests if you are being prohibited from seeing your grandchildren due to:
- Parental separation
- The death of a parent
- The inability of the parents to care for their children
In certain cases, typically those that involve unfit parents, you may wish to seek custody or adoption of your grandchildren. This can be complicated and emotionally draining. However, when you come to our law firm, our lawyers will handle your matter with compassion and understanding. Even if things are not that desperate, if you have had a positive, ongoing relationship with your grandchildren in the past, we will do everything we can to persuade the court that it is in the child’s best interests to grant you visitation or companionship rights.
